Rodizio is one of the stereotypical Brazilian churrascarios that seem to be in every big town. The "hook" is the endless skewer-roasted meats. As expected, the food was good. Actually, the salad bar (1/2 the price of the whole "experience") was excellent, and I was disappointed that I signed up for the whole thing. ...and then there's the service. The... More

Our first visit here was in March, 2017. We had a wonderful experience - Everyone from the hostess who greeted us, our waitress, the gouchos who brought our food was very friendly and ready to answer any questions we had. The food was excellent - it was fun to try the different varieties of meat that they brought to us.... More

Megan was our server and she was awesome. However, our experience was spoiled because the food was cold. We received the tail end of the meat and it was cold. When it gets down to the last slice on the skewers they should not serve that to the guests as it it tough, dry and cold. The food on the... More

Arrived for and early dinner with three friends and had reservations. Although the dining room was nearly empty, it took 10 to 15 minutes to seat us. The Hostess looked confused as to which table we were to be seated at, despite the fact there was only one other table occupied. After being seated, we immediately ordered a round of... More

We had a great meal, the meat kept on coming. The salads were great, the bottle of red wine went great with the meal.

We have been here numerous times. Its a family favorite for special occasions and birthdays. Our latest dinner was just as good as all of the rest. Salad bar is fantastic with endless options. The fire roasted meats are all very god for the most part. Individual tastes may differ, but for the most part the majority were excellent. BTW,... More

This is Sabor with a new name as far as I know: a Brazilian Churrascaria/steakhouse where a wide variety of protein is served in slices tableside by gauchos. Recommend you go hungry...very hungry. ~$35.00USD gets you all you can eat proteins, appetizers and salad bar (as of this writing). We were there to celebrate my son's upcoming birthday. He was...

The food was cold. The service was poor. I have been to this place a year ago. It Is clear the management has changed. When I come to town again I will go to a better well customer focused place to eat. The manger needs to find a new job.

I brought 3 of my culinary students to your restaurant on Sunday night and the only thing the servers were bringing around was pineapple and beef. They came around with two pieces of chicken when we first arrived and then no more chicken. The beef was so rare that it was cold. It was also loaded with fat. We also... More

This wasn't our first time here, and, granted it was a Saturday night, service was exceptionally slow. The food was excellent as always, with plenty of variety, whether one wanted steak, chicken, pork, etc. The salad bar had a delicious assortment of dishes, including quinoa, coconut, hummus...too many to mention. Since it was my son's birthday dinner, I was being... More
